are just now coming off OEM warranty, and the OEM charges up to $1700 for a
two-hour webinar. This class is geared towards those who purchased the system a
few years ago and are looking to do in-house support for their out-of-warranty work.

experience.” Conquest Imaging has invested over $100k in their training program
